All of the remedies listed below are powerful remedies that should only taken under the supervision of a professional classical homeopath.
Homeopathic Remedies for Radiation Therapy
Cadmium Sulphuricum: This is the leading remedy for the side effects of radiation therapy. There is a lot of exhaustion, prostration and icy coldness. There is nausea and vomiting, anorexia, weight loss, and hair loss.
Sol: Hair loss and emaciation. Try this remedy if Cadmium Sulphuricum seems indicated but has no effect.
Radium Bromatum: Use for burned skin after radiation therapy.
X-Ray: Another common remedy for burns caused by radiation therapy.
Topical Aloe Vera: For radiation burns, apply aloe vera directly from the leaf onto the wound. Calendula cream is also effective for topical treatment for radiation burns.
Dosage: Give 2 doses of the indicated remedy, one at 4 hours and one at 2 hours before the radiation therapy. Give one dose immediately after the radiation therapy and then give one at 2 hours and one at 4 hours after. On the two days following the radiation therapy give 3 doses of the indicated remedy approximately 6 hours apart. Use a 30C potency (strength) of the indicated remedy.
Homeopathic Remedies for a Nuclear Crisis & Radioactive Fallout
First, try to determine what radioactive substances you are dealing with. The recommendations below are for people who are in close vicinity to a nuclear disaster. Homeopathic experts Ravi Roy and Carol Lage-Roy helped thousands of people after the Chernobyl disaster. Homeopath Susan Curtis also gives recommendations in her book “Surviving with Natural Remedies.” For the current disaster in Fukushima, Curtis and the Roys recommend the following protocol:
Homeopathic Remedies For Protection (Prophylaxis) from Radiation
Take a combination of remedies specific to the radioactive particles that one is exposed to. For the crisis in Fukushima, take Radium Bromatum, Plutonium Nitricum, Strontium Carbonicum and Caesium Muriaticum. For people with weak thyroids (e.g. Hashimotos), use Radium Iodatum instead of Radium Bromatum. Order a custom made combination remedy to be made up from all four indicated remedies from the homeopathic pharmacy.
Potency: Use a 30C potency (strength) of the indicated remedy.
Dosage for General Protection: Take one dose once per week of the homeopathic combination remedy (e.g. Radium/Plutonium Nitricum/Strontium Carbonicum/Caesium Muriaticum). Repeat for several weeks until danger of exposure has passed.
Dosage During Danger of Exposure: The combination remedy (Radium/Plutonium/Strontium/Caesium) can be taken as often as twice daily. The greater the danger, the more protection the body needs.
Homeopathic Protection from Radioactive Iodine
Kali Iodatum 3X should be taken during exposure to radioiodine. 1 dose should be taken 3 times per day. This method of protection should be considered for those who are in danger of heavy exposure to radioiodine and have no access to Potassium Iodide tablets. It is also the preferred method for those who have minimal exposure to radioactive iodine but who would still like protection (e.g. people in the United States and Canada). Kelp tablets and sea vegetables also protect the thyroid from radioiodine, and can be consumed instead of or along with kali iodatum 3X.
Treatment of Acute Radiation Poisoning
Dr. Grimmer at the height of the cold war recommended carrying Arnica 30C and Phosphorus 30C.
Arsenicum: Nausea, retching and vomiting after eating and drinking. Utter prostration. Extremely anxious and fearful. Restless.
Nux Vomica: Violent vomiting. Intense nausea slightly relieved after vomiting.
Phosphorus: high fever with much vomiting. It is a burning heat as if the internal body is being burnt. Desire for very cold drinks in large quantities. Empty feeling in the stomach with nausea. Anxious and melancholic.
Rhus Venenata: extreme itching, especially if large blisters form.
Refer to the beginning of the article, “Homeopathic Remedies for Radiation Therapy,” as these remedies may also be indicated for acute radiation sickness.
Dosage: Give a 30C potency (strength) of the indicated remedy 2-3 times per day.
